    I know sports fans—and race fans in particular—are growing a little tired of hearing about Danica Patrick.

    Kurt Busch is a lot of things. Unfortunately, “smart” isn’t one of them.

    Note to self: Should I ever be sent to work on the scene of an auto racing event, be sure not to wander around pit row with my camera.  At least not while the race is going on. Unfortunately, this guy’s job entails that he captures footage of the cars as they make their pit […]
